Traumatic eye injuries from collapsible wire laundry hampers.

Pediatrics 2013 Aug 1;132(2):e522-5. Epub 2013 Jul 1.

University of Illinois at Chicago Eye and Ear Infirmary, Chicago, Illinois 60612, USA.

Two patients presented to the University of Illinois at Chicago Eye and Ear Infirmary within 1 year with penetrating eye injuries caused by similar collapsible cloth and wire laundry hampers. Penetrating eye injuries in children are relatively rare but can result in poor visual outcomes and multiple vision-threatening complications. Both injuries at the University of Illinois resulted in an eye laceration as well as retinal complications similar to those reported with a high velocity injury. Read More

Semi-rational engineering of cellobiose dehydrogenase for improved hydrogen peroxide production.

Microb Cell Fact 2013 Apr 23;12:38. Epub 2013 Apr 23.

Vienna Institute of Biotechnology, Department of Food Sciences and Technology, BOKU-University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna, Austria.

Background: The ability of fungal cellobiose dehydrogenase (CDH) to generate H2O2 in-situ is highly interesting for biotechnological applications like cotton bleaching, laundry detergents or antimicrobial functionalization of medical devices. CDH's ability to directly use polysaccharide derived mono- and oligosaccharides as substrates is a considerable advantage compared to other oxidases such as glucose oxidase which are limited to monosaccharides. However CDH's low activity with oxygen as electron acceptor hampers its industrial use for H2O2 production. Read More
